3 Amigos Escape Along The River, Dye Sublimation Print on Aluminum Sheet Metal, by Matthew Coglianese. Through my lifelong affair and experimenting with various forms of art I chose to walk the path of Graphic Designer and Photographer which fortunately go hand in hand. With a formal education in graphic design already in place, in 2009 I began implementing my photography into my workflow which allows me to maximize my creative efforts by having total control of my design process from beginning to end. My focus now relies heavily on my photographs to be digitally manipulated and altered before creating that “final image”. I find the most enjoyment when I am altering images turning the “visual truth” into something else that could never exist. Whether I am creating a giant hot dog crashing through a building, or a giraffe casually jaywalking across a busy city street, to a post apocalyptic cityscape, it’s the concepts that most likely could never exist here and now that draw me in closest.
